That's sad, because IMO best practices are not subjective. How to cut corners and what opinions people have about coding and what opinionated framework to use, yeah, those are subjective. But best practices should be things everyone can agree on and agnostic to language and framework.

This is the bane of a maintainable product through its life. I hear this phrase at work and it makes me cringe, as it causes people to compromise on their values, which is contrary to what the opinionated conclusion in the article states.
